This box is of cedar and pine. The top/lid is pine as is the “X” divider in the box. It measures 12×12 x 5 and is finished with danish oil and wax. The top was plain until I put the wolf on it today and it completely changed the box’s appearance for the good. The process I use is tedious to say the least.

The last pic is of an “embellishment” that I was gonna put on it as the plain pine top was just too drab! BUT, the piece I made just didnt look good for the top and served no purpose so I will set it aside until it screams to be used!

Thanks for the looks and comments.

I like what you did with the box. The logo looks nice on it.

Your “X” or a version of it could be used as a divider inside a box. Just a thought.

You designed a wonderful box. The inside divider is unique.

Nicely done. Makes me want to do a epoxy inlay again. How did you do the wolf?

That last pic reminds me of spider legs. Maybe a stand for a smaller box?

Nicely done box. It has a certain intangible quality that I can’t put my finger on, but it really attracts one’s attention.

I likes it. I like the way the top came out. That resaw with a spacer in the middle came out nicely. I do like the compartments inside also.

Nice box. Like the artwork.
